felt sorry for little Oliver being an orphan and when looking up

Great Britain having the class distinction, her mom didn’t want her children to feel out of place she wanted them to feel proud of who they were. She also wanted her daughter to be able to fit into the world around her. Her mother like to read about the working-class poor in the nineteenth and twentieth century, and this is where she learned about the elite and Queen Victoria. She was not popular at all, unlike what had been written about her in the history books when her mom went to school. Victoria had an unhappy childhood, but did find happiness when marrying Prince Albert, and had nine children. In part of her time of ruling, they kept the common folks, the adults and children ignorant, and as slaves working them to exhaustion in labor houses. There were widespread slums and sickness, the working-class poor were considered not important. Doesn't that sound like Hillary Clinton calling the Trump supporter the basket of deplorables.
Many of the 19th- century finance ministers toyed, with the idea of abolishing income tax, but it proved to convenient and to lucrative to lose. Her mother knew how this affected her mother and her mother’s sister as children, not having any food on their table. Their mother an alcoholic and them going hungry most of the time. Sitting outside the pub waiting patiently for their mother to stagger out and to fill their tummies; picking up orange peel from the street, eating the pith to serve. They didn't realize how much this helped them getting their vitamin C.
Having The Ruling Class
Reading that Queen Victoria later did want to help the poor, in this draft of a letter written by Queen Victoria’s Private Secretary, Sir Henry Ponsonby, to the Prime Minister William Gladstone in 1883. The Queen expresses her distress at all she has heard and had read. The deplorable condition of the homes of the working poor and the final paragraph of the letter, was written in the Queen’s own handwriting. She urged immediate action to improve the housing of the lowest income groups. Poor working conditions, disease and crime were also common in the Victorian towns and cities. The Queen was aware that social reform needed to take place, and necessary to help the poor. Then with queen Victoria's assistance they did slowly help the downtrodden citizens. In 1880, Queen Victoria was asked to pardon a large number of children, who had been given prison sentences. Victoria had read from a report by the Home Secretary Sir William Harcourt. It explained, imprisonment of young people actually turned them into criminals. The punishments for criminal behaviour were usually very severe, even for the youngest; who had committed seemingly trivial offences. Stealing food to be able to survive. The Queen agreed that the law needed to be changed and to correct this situation. But no new legislation was passed until the First Offenders Act of 1887.

The young generation today living in Canada and the USA have been spoiled, they have no idea what it's like to go hungry and have the ruling class, the elites rule over them.
